Baralan's responsible vision is to identify sustainable materials that respect the conditions of recyclability and biodegradability, through a responsible choice by selecting biopolymers that derive from renewable resources and natural materials, not related to the food chain.

Product description

Baralan presents a new line of bioplastic items produced by a biopolymer. This Biopolymer is made by a combination of natural fibres and waste from a specific manufacturing process. Baralan is able to use this Biopolymer to produce certain standard items with injection moulding technology. The items are produced in the Group’s manufacturing plant, Labor Plast, and presented in 4 product categories: sticks, jars and compacts, overcaps/overpumps and screw caps – the best accessories also for Baralan’s glass bottles and jars.

Benefits

This new raw material combines the processing capabilities of thermoplastic materials with properties of renewable resources and natural materials. The Biopolymer is 100% natural and its main characteristics are: recyclable and biodegradable. This Biopolymer can be used with existing Baralan moulds and has flexible applicability in manufacturing.

Technical details

Baralan has performed positive mechanical tests which are in continuous progress along with testing of compatible and coherent colouring elements, or transparent versions, and/or decorations. Baralan’s corporate decisions are made in full awareness and respect for social responsibility as it has an active team with the specific mission of researching and producing innovative sustainable packaging. Starting from here they are able to develop a packaging that could also be compostable in compliance with current regulations.

It is our concrete response to the topic of sustainability that respects the needs of the environment in the field of cosmetic packaging. For Baralan it is important to innovate by proposing increasingly sustainable solutions, but at the same time it is equally important to always be able to guarantee the quality and functionality of the product for the final consumer: it is a combination of relevance and credibility.

How does it relate to the story?

Our daily challenge is to achieve sustainable results by presenting to the market a range of high quality products, capable of anticipating and satisfying the consumer's needs even with adequate attention to environmental and social issues.

Why the product is innovative?

It is Baralan’s packaging innovation for ecology. We are able to offer a sustainable alternative solution to plastic that integrates environmental criteria in the industrialization process of a product presenting the possibility to develop bioplastic items. The scope of our sustainable packaging evolution is to propose a sustainable complete life-cycle.
